Lady Gaga's Born This Way album was supposed to have an exclusive special edition only available at Target stores, but that deal has fizzled and it's reportedly because of differences in the politics of gay rights between Gaga and the retail mammoth.

Reports say that Gaga has backed out of the deal because of the store's history of supporting and donating to politicians with an anti-gay rights agenda. A source for The Advocate says that Gaga and Target "didn't see eye to eye on Target's policy of political donations and how they affect the LGBT community."

In an interview with Billboard, Gaga recently reflected on Target's past, and how the deal came about despite her hesitations:

"That discussion was one of the most intense conversations I've ever had in a business meeting ... Part of my deal with Target is that they have to start affiliating themselves with LGBT charity groups and begin to reform and make amends for the mistakes they've made in the past ... our relationship is hinged upon their reform in the company to support the gay community and to redeem the mistakes they've made supporting those [antigay] groups."
Many took a stance against Target when it was revealed they backed MN Forward, a political action committee that gave support to Minnesota State Rep. Tom Emmer's failed 2010 governor campaign.

    I agree with Erin! At first I liked her...catchy tunes, but I very quickly (like a matter of months) realized how she is so fake, so full of her self. She is ignorant and naive to accuse people of hate when it comes to LGBT issues. She has intolerance just like anyone else its just a different set of boundaries. There are plenty of people who have loved ones who are LBGT, but disagree with the lifestyle and still have a whole lot of love for them. When you keep your cool and talk to anyone who is as liberal as she is, the more you see the anger and hate they themselves have come out. She has even expressed herself that she wanted after gay men who didn't want her, and its sad in my opinion. She's not a good role model, and she's definitely not that creative... the more you examine her music and style the more you see copycat written all over her. I cant tell you how many of her songs I've heard and thought, hm that sounds so similar to this or that song... She's young and thinks she can tell anyone what to do. Its sad because it's obvious she is hurting and lonely inside. I've heard her, I've listened to the issues she claims to stand for... Doesn't seem like she stands for much but its pretty smart of her to hop on the gay train and use it for her own benefit. Believe it, she makes a lot more than the LBGT charity groups. She's not going to give up her money or fame for them. Her hunger for power is so apparent in everything she does and sings about.

    This woman has revealed herself as nothing more than an arrogant fascist. Who the hell does she think she is, telling people what to think and what to do with their money? Gaga, here's a newsflash for you: NOT EVERYONE AGREES WITH THE GAY AGENDA. DEAL WITH IT. It doesn't have anything to do with "hate", as you define it. For her to be telling this company to "reform and make amends for their mistakes" is so breathtakingly arrogant and totalitarian that I am truly shocked. But then again, what else can you expect from a woman whose ego is so out of control that she has actually fashioned herself as Goddess of the Universe in her latest video?

    Any pop star who writes her own sh*t and doesn't have to ask someone if she's allowed to take a dump (like Britney Spears) is a step in the right direction as far as I'm concerned.
